The North Carolina gymnastics team ended the regular season Friday with one of its strongest performances of the year. The Tar Heels posted a team score of 194.775, their best away score this season and second-best all year.
UNC finished the night .500 points ahead of runner-up Brown. William and Mary and Rutgers finished third and fourth, respectively, falling more than a full point behind North Carolina.
For the first time since their last victory— a home win against Pitt on Jan. 31 — the Tar Heels went into a meet at full strength.
UNC welcomed back two key contributors Friday in freshman Christina Pheil and senior Michelle Ikoma, both of whom missed time this season with injuries.
In her first meet in almost two months, Pheil competed in only the floor exercise, earning a score of 9.750
